AllMusic Review by

Legends collects three discs' worth of performances from Perry Como, including "Round and Round," "Magic Moments," "Catch a Falling Star," "Papa Loves Mambo," "Days of Wine and Roses," and "I Left My Heart in San Francisco." While the set features some amount of Como's best songs -- ones that he made famous as well as interpretations of standards -- it also includes more than its fair share of middling tracks, like his versions of "Something," "Close to You," and "Killing Me Softly With Her Song." Overall, Legends manages to be big without becoming comprehensive; a set like The Definitive Perry Como has a much better balance of quantity and quality.
